CANTON, Ohio - Its approaching show-time for Buffalo Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins. Balenciaga Shoes Australia . Hes already dazzled teammates and fans in training camp. Next is helping the Bills kick off the preseason against the New York Giants in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, which you can watch live on TSN and TSN GO on Sunday at 8pm et/5pm pt. And its not lost on Watkins that Andre Reed will be in attendance, a day after the former Bills star receivers induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. "I definitely want to go out there and put on a great show for him," Watkins said. "And I want to get a win. That would just start the team up and build confidence for everybody." Watkins has shown glimpses of why the Bills regarded him so highly in the draft. Buffalo gambled by trading its 2015 first-round pick to Cleveland and moved up five spots to select the Clemson player at No. 4. Hes shown breakaway speed by making numerous deep catches along the sideline, eliciting huge cheers from the stands. Watkins became a YouTube and Twitter sensation after videos showed him stumbling and nearly falling before recovering to make a one-handed catch in the end zone. Despite a slim, 6-foot-1, 211-pound frame, hes proven fearless in making catches in traffic. That was apparent during a full-team drill on the second day of camp. Quarterback EJ Manuels pass was tipped at the line of scrimmage and fluttered high into the air. Watkins raced back to make a leaping grab amid three defenders and came down with the ball in a pile of players. He also got poked in the eye. "There are two things I can do: I can wait for it to get picked off, or I can go make a play on it," Watkins said. "My first reaction was the ball was in the air, go make a play on it." Centre Eric Wood is among Bills veterans impressed by Watkins. "At this point, it wasnt like shocking. I almost expected it," Wood said, referring to Watkins one-handed catch. "He is exactly what youd hope for given what we gave up to get him and how we took him." Thats an encouraging step for a Manuel-led passing attack that lacked consistency and big-play ability during the quarterbacks rookie season last year and contributed to the Bills 6-10 finish. "As a coach, you have expectations, but hes performed better than I wouldve expected," coach Doug Marrone said of Watkins. "I think a lot of people are excited." Giants safety Stevie Brown is looking forward to a closer view of Watkins. "He was definitely deserving to be the top receiver taken," Brown said. "He can jump over you and then take it 20 yards more. Hes got the ability to make tough catches. If he catches the ball, I can never let up on getting after him." The Giants will unveil a new offensive style under new co-ordinator Ben McAdoo. Theyre introducing a quick-paced, no-huddle attack to help take the pressure off quarterback Eli Manning, who threw a career-worst 27 interceptions last season. "I think we are going to put us right to the test and see how well we know the offence, know how well this thing can perform at a high level," receiver Victor Cruz said. Cruz returns as Mannings top threat, and third-year receiver Rueben Randle has moved into the No. 2 spot after the Giants lost Hakeem Nicks in free agency. The Giants also used a first-round draft pick on a receiver, selecting Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th pick. However, Beckham hasnt participated fully in practice since hurting his hamstring on the first day of camp. Cheap Authentic Balenciaga Shoes . Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division. Cheap Balenciaga Shoes Australia . Richard Jefferson scored 17 points and Diante Garrett had a career-high 15 points as the Jazz had seven players with 10 points or more in Utahs largest margin of victory this season. . Torres scored the first goal by an English team in the knockout phase of the Champions League this season when he met Cezar Azpilicuetas cutback in the ninth minute of their first leg match in the last 16. But Chelsea failed to make the most of its counterattacks and the Turkish champions equalized in the second half after gaining in confidence and cutting out their defensive mistakes.Philadelphia, PA ( - North Dakota States national championship-winning defense has been the standard across the FCS throughout the decade. The best in show, if you will. In contrast, Illinois State likes to claim it unleashes a pack of mutts on game day. But the Missouri Valley Football Conference co-champions will bring both bark and bite to the national dog show, er, NCAA Division I Football Championship Game Saturday at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas (ESPN2, 1 p.m. ET). Yes, beware of defense. The championship game is expected to be a bruising matchup of stopping the run and pounding the other into mission. North Dakota State is seeking an unprecedented fourth straight FCS title while Illinois State will try to end the Bison dynasty in its first championship game appearance. The two defenses might have different pedigrees, but both 4-3 systems are linked by having new defensive coordinators and mixing in new contributors with veteran standouts. North Dakota State led the FCS in scoring defense in each of its championship years and this season the team ranks second nationally behind Harvard in allowing 13.2 points per game. The Bison (14-1), who feature the national defensive player of the year in Buck Buchanan Award-winning defensive end Kyle Emanuel, also rank third in total defense, allowing opponents just 270.8 yards per game. Illinois States more balanced defense has allowed 20.9 points and 337.6 yards per game - not the NDSU standard, of course, but still impressive numbers while playing in the nations top FCS conference. I think when we play together, were very good. If we dont play together, were just average. Were a pack of mutts, were not a bunch of purebreds, said Illinois State coach Brock Spack, whose defense has helped take down a murderers row of offenses in Northern Iowa, Eastern Washington and New Hampshire during the postseason. Spack, who was the defensive coordinator at his alma mater, Purdue, from 1997-2008, is in his sixth season as Illinois States head coach. He had been coordinating the Redbirds defense in recent seasons until he began to hand the duties over to defensive line coach Spence Nowinsky during the 2013 season. Right after the 5-6 campaign, Spack handed Nowinsky the keys to the defense. The Redbirds have rebounded to go 13-1 and play with a relentless, physical style on defense, featuring All-Missouri Valley first-team selections Pat Meehan, a middle linebacker, and Teddy Corwin, a defensive end. The defense has two FBS transfers in defensive end David Perkins (Ohio State) and outside linebacker Oshay Dunmore (Oregon). Senior linebacker Mike Banks is the units most experienced player, going into his 50th and final start. Spence has done a great job, along with obviously the rest of our defensive staff, Spack said. So the guys understand the systtem, they understand there is a protocol which we install our system, theres a protocol how we game plan . Cheap Balenciaga Australia. . and Ive kind of stuck to that, and they learned it, and now thats kind of what they do. They have their own little tweaks to things, as they should, and theyve done a great job. The system is in place, and I felt that I could step away, and Im still in that room almost exclusively, but Im in the room a lot. They lean on me for advice, and Im there if they need it, and Ill chime in when I feel its necessary, but Ive enjoyed being a head coach - this is my sixth year - more than I have the five previous years. Chris Klieman arrived at North Dakota State also after coaching at his alma mater, Northern Iowa. He joined the Bison in their first national championship season in 2011 as their defensive backs coach and then served as defensive coordinator the last two seasons. After Craig Bohl departed to become Wyomings head coach last January, NDSU wisely elevated Klieman to the top job. He later brought Matt Entz over from Western Illinois to become defensive coordinator. Including Emanuel, who has the most tackles for loss (31) and sacks (19.5) in the FCS, the Bison returned six starters and seven of their top nine tacklers from last season. They rebuilt the interior of the defensive line with junior Brian Schaetz and redshirt freshman Nate Tanguay, and reloaded on the back end with the likes of linebacker Carlton Littlejohn and Esley Thornton and safeties Colten Heagle and Christian Dudzik, who has yet to miss a start as he enters his 60th and final game. Entz, Klieman said, had to leave a really good job with Coach (Bob) Nielson at Western Illinois to come to Fargo with his family and take a chance, and he did that, and hes done a remarkable job of being Matt Entz, of not trying to be anything that I was or Scottie Hazelton was before, similar to myself, trying to make my own niche, Matt has made his own niche, and the guys love to play for him. Hes done a great job of game planning each week as well as our other defensive staff members, and couldnt be happier to have Matt on my staff for the long haul. Well, he didnt want to reinvent the wheel ... its not like weve done a bunch of different things schematically, I think its just his demeanor. Hes a very polished coach that will be a guy thats going to get on a guy, but hes going to love him up. Hes going to get to know those players so well. You know, theres nothing totally different that youd say, boy, were a different coverage, were a different pressure team. Hes just been a great leader, and his leadership style is different than mine. Its different than what Coach Hazelton was, and when I replaced Scottie, and its really meshed and worked well with our guys. Theyre similar yet different defenses, but both championship-level.
